OTTENSTEINER STAUSEE, Waldviertel, Lower Austria, AUSTRIA
The reservoir was created in the 1950s and is 4.5 square kilometers in size. It has become a popular leisure-time destination in the Waldviertel thanks to its many sports and recreational activities.
Ottenstein is the furthest upstream and also the largest of the three reservoirs along the Kamp River. It offers landscapes of striking beauty and a host of popular recreational activities. The deep inlets along the lake shore are reminiscent of Scandinavian fjords, a land form that is not really typically Austrian. They are part of the special charm of this region around Ottenstein Reservoir.
